For years now, the marketing and media world have been preoccupied with millenials – getting to grips with the ‘Me, Me, Me Generation’. There is now a new generation that deserves attention – Generation Z, ie those born between 1996 and 2010 – who are guardians of the future and valuable consumers too.

Norway is one of the smaller research markets in Europe, obviously connected to the fact that there are only 5 million Norwegians to survey. Despite this, Norway has a very active and large research community, organized in the Norwegian Market Research Association (NMF), dating back to 1970. Currently, NMF has 750 active members, with an even spread of agency staff and research buyers.

The first Digital Research conference took place on 6 October and was a project by the Russian Research Week (researchweek.ru). The purpose of this event was to discuss the latest methods and technologies of marketing and sociological research. An important point, I suppose is that the speakers were chosen on a competitive basis: the program committee scored each application and only the ones with highest scores were finally approved. Moreover, two foreign speakers, recommended by ESOMAR, took part in the Digital Research conference Preriit Souda from Kantar TNS and Michalis Michael – DigitalMR founder.
